My apartment is a quaint little nook right in the heart of Harlem. The C& B trains are roughly 2 blocks away from my home. One of Uptowns dopest restaurants/ lounges is the Edge which is a block away from my home.

We're a very small family. I am a stay at home mom who takes care of her 1-year-old boy during the day. My son is very friendly and welcoming. He barely causes any commotion, therefore, you are able to have a good nights rest! My spouse goes to work as a Customer service representative for pet medications until 7 pm. He's off two days a week. When we're all home, we like to clean, cook, and have family time with a movie, tv show, or through conversation. We also enjoy going out a lot on family outings or shopping.

    My stay was enjoyable and clean. The description wasn't 100% correct although the pictures were accurate. No key provided but once I was checked in the hosts where flexible with my schedule as I came and went, even coming back home at a late hour. Check in process was a little difficult as we needed to synchronize our schedules. I would stay here again.

    I enjoyed the staying with Nova and the family very much. Very nice persons, a lovely son, a quiet environment, good connection to downtown and a chance to get to know Harlem. And I also realy enjoyed to sleep on a big air mattress, a new experience but comfortable.

    They both are very good people. I stayed in Manhattan 10 days for traveling. During this period, they really helped me a lot. They have a dog but the dog is very kind to me. Next time if I got a chance to come back. I'm definitely going to choose the happy family again.

    Thanks Nicole for such an appreciated review! Our family and I enjoyed having her as our company. She was very sweet and respectful. She adjusted very well to our home like she fit right in. She's also very independent and had no issues getting around the big apple. Looking forward to seeing her the next time around.

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
